Did anyone check out the beautiful array of shift dresses that Sarai posted for inspiration yesterday?

Shift dresses aren’t generally my favorite shape, but Sarai just might have convinced me that even pears can wear shift dresses. I am seriously tempted to put a shift dress on my sew-this-soon list. The comment chatter over at Coletterie suggests that maybe Sarai has a shift dress pattern in the works, but in case you don’t wanna wait for the release…
It’s time for another pattern giveaway! I have a shift dress pattern up for grabs, along with several others. I also wanted to celebrate finishing my Minoru – which felt like an epic battle at times – by giving some love back to the sewing community. Maybe I’ll do this every time I finish a project. Hmmm. Also, we’ll be moving to a new house in the summer, and I don’t wanna haul a bunch of sewing patterns with me that I never intend to use. So help me out! Here’s what I’m offering this time…
Butterick 3243 – Bust size 34″ – Cute shift dress pattern with clever pocket placement!
Butterick 3738 – Bust size 36″ – These camisoles are pretty darn cute.
Simplicity 5475 – Bust size 39″ – Another shift dress! Sorta. A shifty dress. It’s sorta A-line, but that’s just what would make it work for another pear shaped lady like me.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below with a link to something you are sewing (or would like to sew) for spring! It snowed again today, so I could really use some sunshiney inspiration up in here. I’ll close the giveaway on Saturday at noon and choose a winner.
*EDIT* Forgot to say, I’ll be selecting one lucky person to receive all five patterns. I’d divvy them up, but I have a box full of patterns to give away (eventually) and if I ship them all individually the postage would add up to quite a lot!
